Our School Charity
This year we have also chosen a local charity to support, following a suggestion made by one of our pupils. We thought it was a great idea of his to work with a charity in our community over the academic year! We are now linked with Alabare, a local Christian charity that supports vulnerable, homeless and marginalised people. Alabare help them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live a fulfilled life.

How do we support Alabare?
- Our Harvest appeal was donated to Alabare. We collected a huge amount of food and presented it to Laura, their Community Engagement Officer, at our Harvest festival.
- We had a collection at all of our Christmas events and have donated this to Alabare... we raised £310!!
- Laura and Roofus from Alabare delivered an assembly about their charity and who/how they support in our local area. School Council pupils are now planning some sponsored events.
- More than 200 people slept overnight in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral - to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless in the city. The annual 'big sleep' has been held for more than a decade - this year one of our parents, Mrs Peska, braved the cold!
